Juicer

The multitude of variations of delicious, healthy drinks you can make with a juicer means you’ll never get bored. Juicers are also a great way to use up odd bits of fruit and veg. Our advice is to get a decent model to help you keep up with your new regime – it’s worth spending a bit more to get the full benefit. Good juicers will leave little waste and allow concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes to rapidly enter the bloodstream ensuring maximum nutritional benefits.

Vegetable steamer

Steaming vegetables helps lock in nutrients that are lost through other cooking methods such as boiling or microwaving. Steaming also helps vegetables keep their flavour as it doesn’t overcook them, as well as making them easier to digest and therefore absorb all that goodness. You can steam vegetables by simply placing them in a metal basket above a boiling pan of water, but to make life easier an electric steamer does it all for you. And why not try some steamed meat and fish to go with your veg?

Reusable water bottles

Everyone knows the health benefits of drinking around two litres of water a day. This hydration benefits your skin, improves metabolism and helps general wellbeing. Reusable water bottles are plentiful but only a few will filter the water for you as you drink it giving you a much fresher taste. The Bobble Filter Bottle uses a clever replaceable carbon filter that removes chlorine and any other contaminants from your water. Not only does it give you fresh tasting water it’s much better for the environment as every filter gives you the equivalent of 300 500ml single use plastic bottles.

Health Grill

Health grills are a great way to get rid of unwanted fat in your cooking. Any type of grilling is generally a better way of cooking food then frying or baking but health grills can be much more convenient to use and clean as well as helping keep meat moist whilst cooking. They also help cook meat more quickly. The original and still a market leader is the George Foreman range and we like the family size version for its versatility. Just remember some meats such as burgers and sausages are never going to be that healthy no matter how you cook them!

Spaghetti measurer

Portion control is a key requisite for a healthier diet. One thing to consider is to replace your entire crockery set with smaller plates but if this is too drastic a simple spaghetti measurer is a really useful gadget to ensure you’re not over doing the amount on your plate. We like the adjustable versions that make it easy when cooking for multiple people.
